Academy Award winning documentary on the pivotal naval battle of the war in the Pacific. Filmed while the attack on Midway Island was underway, standout director John Ford was actually injured during filming.
More info on the film is available on its IMDB page.
This version was produced from a video copy of a fair film transfer at the National Archives.

Very slow moving. No real action till "midway" thru the film. Out of focus home movies mostly. Not recommended to view.

Not as interesting as I thought
Downloaded the 1 gig MPEG2-version since the 256 kbit/s MP4 -version didn't work. Somehow this documentary just disappointed. Sure there was some real footage from aircraft flying and anti aircraft fire against jap planes etc. But there was no information about the real battle. Also there was, quite conveniently, no mention that the big American victory was in large part due to luck. Well probably all that was to be expected since the documentary dates from 1942.
